Bead and Button Show

Here we come Milwaukee!

We are excited to be returning to the amazing Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee! This sprawling mega-event runs for eight days this year (June 4th – June 11th) at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee. Hosted by Bead and Button Magazine, the BBS has grown from humble beginnings in the mid 1990’s to the premier tradeshow it is today. People trek from all over the globe to wander it’s expansive show floor, attend workshops or buy finished pieces. We’ll be there at Booth #1006 with a special BBS Sale. Be sure to come say “Hi” and get a chance at winning our daily $100 gift card raffle!

Art Competition

Don’t forget to check out the Bead Dreams Art Competition to jump start your own creative process. Entries will be sure to astound and amaze as jewelers from around the world bring their absolute best pieces to strive for the coveted “Best in Show”.


As usual, the Bead and Button Show’s Silent Auction will benefit the Medical College of Wisconsin’s breast cancer research programs. Come bid on finished artwork, supplies and more while helping to further life-saving research.


If you want a preview of the what’s going to be out on the Marketplace floor, swing by the Moonlight Madness preview on Tuesday June 6  for a limited evening sneak peek of a limited selection (this sneak peek is open to the public). Registered show attendees can opt for the Thursday evening Preview Night with the entire Marketplace open to them alone.


Classes will be going on for the entirety of the show and are a great opportunity to sharpen your skills or pick up new techniques from instructors hailing from all points of the world.


It’s gonna be an exciting week and we hope to see you there!
